about us

Pet Detectives and Rescue Fund is a subsidiary of Ariel Investigations. Our cases are conducted in the most ethical manner and according to the laws governing the State of California and New Mexico. We rescue and evaluate abused animals so we can introduce them to a new home. 

 

Our company was formed because of the problem of animal abuse, and neglect has grown beyond the resources of the existing animal welfare agencies. They cannot keep pace with the volume of the issues that need to be addressed. We intercede without hesitation when we are informed of a situation that needs to be addressed.

 

Historically, violence to animals has been viewed as an issue separate from other forms of violence. However, cruelty to animals, particularly companion animals, is now seen as a part of the landscape of family violence and a risk to human health, safety, and welfare with strong links to child maltreatment, domestic violence, and elder abuse.

 

We believe that people are at risk when animals are abused and that animals are at risk when people are abused. Since no forms of family violence should be tolerated, the disciplines involved should collaborate for a more effective, comprehensive approach to reducing violence.

 

A growing and compelling body of research are confirming these links and describing animal abuse as a predictor and indicator crime that often signals serious interpersonal aggression and familial dysfunction. 

People who abuse animals have been found to be significantly more likely to commit violent crimes, domestic violence, and other antisocial behaviors. Laws are catching up to what instinctively we know as people to be ethically and morally right in the treatment of animals.

We work in cooperation with other animal welfare organizations and law enforcement agencies, and we will stop at nothing within the bounds of the law to achieve its goals.

 

We have over a decade of experience in investigations and animal training and we believe this program could help all of us save the lives of so many abused and neglected dogs. 


Our vision is that all dogs are treated with dignity and respect and live free from cruelty, harm, and neglect. Simple acts of awareness and compassion can save the lives of countless dogs in need. Animals can’t tell us about their abuse or cry out for help so we decided to stand up for as many of them as we can to stop violence and find them forever happy homes.
 
Our focus keeps us dedicated to fighting the enormous amount of suffering caused by the pet overpopulation problem by offering a program where we spay and neuter all rescued dogs.

 

Our mission is to enhance and coordinate enforcement of animal cruelty laws and to educate interested agencies aspects of animal cruelty and the relationship of animal cruelty to other forms of assaulting behavior.
